    Well, not all the details on guests and stuff are available yet, but TFCon 2009 is only about 4 months away, and is going to be huge this year. There's a lot to look forward to, what are you most interested in/excited about?

    The inevitable movie hype and presence of TFTM2 figures? Hasbro Canada's booth? The giant dealers area, which will be running with refreshed dealers across 2 days (with the Action Figure Expo being the following day, that's right TFCon is 2 days this year!)? The contests? Guest speakers? Meeting friends?

    I'm interested in seeing what Hasbro Canada will present this year and of course the two days of dealer rooms!

    I'm really looking forward to the Customs contest again & meeting more cool people from TFW & Cy.ca.
    I'll be the tall white guy with a big blue flame tattoo on my right forearm.
    Just give me a yell. I had a blast last year meeting Dak, Code, Jonnydark & Anti-spark

    May 29th has been reported as the mass release date for TFTM2 toys. Here's hoping that a preview figure or two are out by TFCon (soundwave?) and I'm exited to see what Hasbro Canada will have on display movie-wise.

    That is what im looking forward to, FP POWERED COMMANDER!!!!!!!!

    ever since I first saw that they made City Commander I wanted a Powered Convoy repaint. I obediently bought City Commander and Shadow Commander. Now my patronage has been rewarded.

    I would like FP to milk the mold just a little more. Shattered Glass Prime and Crystal Convoy need matching armors. just sayin' I like the mold.

    For those of you that have gone to both, how does TFcon compare to Botcon?

    I'm looking forward to heading back to my hometown in TO and getting a poutine (something the US is sorely lacking) with fellow TF fans.

    The difference between TFCon and Botcon is that at Botcon, you tend to sit there and watch productions being put on, where at TFCon, there are lots of events geared towards fan participation and that participation is really valued. I feel like my feedback and the stuff I do there really matter towards the con experience as a whole. Meeting up, hanging out and talking about robots is the heart of TFCon. Yes, it has a dealer room and exclusives and all that good stuff too, but TFCon is just such a friendly, take-part kind of show.

    Botcon has bigger exclusives and a bigger dealer room and more voice actors...it's basically bigger all around...and it's great fun too, but there's something about the ability to actually be a part of it, and not just watch it, that is special.

    totally agree with you Solscud bout the mold
    it just keeps getting better and better with it
    How many people though have a Shattered Glass Prime
    and Crystal Convoy
    making either would be a stretch
    but sure would be SWEET!!!

    Hooray, I got my email confirmation for TFCon.

    If any of the members of the Christian Group are thinking about meeting up for something I'd be down.

    OptimistPrime*, you should post a message in the group to see if anyone there is in need of a roommate. I'm coming up with my wife and kids so I wouldn't make a very good roommate.
